With one time measuring it should be presumed that you have high bp.
Go for regular checking of bp for some time and keep record.
Then consult your doctor and seek his advice.
Take less salt,
Avoid fried,fat and junk food.
Do regular exercise daily for 30-40 mnt for 5 days in a week.
Avoid stress.
Ok and bye.
